Who dares to visit Burton Agnes Hall’s Spooky Woodland Trail?

If you are feeling brave this half term, why not venture over to Burton Agnes Hall and take part in their spooky woodland trail? Every Halloween, fearless visitors are welcomed to an eerie hunt round the Hall’s atmospheric woodland, where clues are hidden amidst dramatic and creative spooky Halloween scenes, with haunted graveyards, ghostly figures and mummified zoo animals!  Once the entire puzzle has been solved, a treat awaits in the Gift Shop.

After the thrill of the spooky woodland trail, visitors can relax in the comfort of the courtyard and enjoy homemade meals, light bites and indulgent treats in the café, while the courtyard shops will be brimming with original gifts and seasonal and Yorkshire-made produce. Visitors can also choose from a range of home grown plants, propagated from the gardens.

The Michaelmas Fair, on the 28th and 29th October, starts half-term week with a bustling street fair; a wide variety of intriguing stalls and an array of traditional street performances keep fair goers entertained throughout the weekend.

The spooky Halloween woodland trail runs from 28th October to 5th November and is designed for all the family to enjoy. There is no extra charge for the trail: admission is included in the normal Gardens price and is free for Burton Agnes Hall members.
